More Information

TI WiLink™ 8 module family

The WL1837MOD is one of the six module variants in the TI WiLink™ 8 combo module family. For designs requiring performance in the 2.4 GHz band only, see the WL1835MOD.


The certified WiLink 8 module from TI offers high throughput and extended range along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth coexistence (WL1837MOD only) in a power-optimized design. The WL18x7MOD is a Wi-Fi, dual-band, 2.4- and 5-GHz module solution with two antennas supporting Industrial temperature grade. The device is FCC, IC, ETSI/CE, and TELEC certified for AP (with DFS support) and client. TI offers drivers for high-level operating systems, such as Linux® and Android. Additional drivers, such as WinCE and RTOS, which includes QNX, Nucleus, ThreadX, and FreeRTOS, are supported through third parties.
